Updates: School construction at slave cemetery site in North Carolina

Here are another couple of links about a proposal to build a school over what some say is a former slave cemetery, from the NBC affiliate and the Raleigh News & Observer, the latter of which includes news that a citizens advisory board is backing a rezoning effort to make it easier for the school to be built. It also says that cemetery preservationists are critical of the work done by a consultant that examining the site, and that they also think Native Americans are buried there.
